I really like this outfit and so I decided to write a review.
Barretes: Ok, but do not hold a ton of hair. They are cute. Shirt: Great fit, not too low cut like some of the newer shirts. I used to have this shirt for myself, a looooong time ago. Jacket: I love this jacket, I can see a girl of today wearing that at this age. The zipper is functional and everything! Pants: Extremely cute, almost could work as dolly snow pants. I love the embrodiery at the end and how the have the zipper that you can use if you want to but boots on her instead. Shoes: AWESOME!!!!These shoes are easy to put on and take off, will not fall off, and I see how an actualy girl would wear them because they are so simple to put on. Overall Grade: A+
I also think that this set goes great with the School Supplies. I highly recommend this set for girls and for dolls!!

I love this set I got it a long time ago when it first came out. Laura has pretty much claimed it, she usually wears it to school. I like this outfit because it does look like something a real girl would wear. It's almost exactly what i wore at 10 years old. In fact, I remember I had a shirt just like the one in this set(not the AG one it was Levi). Also, this shirt goes well with the Go Anywhere outfit.
My Dolls: Molly (2001), Laura(#14)(2003), Elizabeth (2006), and Kirsten (2009)
The screen-printed t-shirt, jacket, and shoes are very nice. The pants are a bit on the thin side and see-through. I don't like being able to see panties through pants. My hair clips have tarnished. I know there are tarnish-free metals, and I wish they had used that.
This isn't the greatest picture, but here is Caroline (GT 24) modeling this outfit:
This is such a sweet outfit, not exactly "sporty" and a bit girly but Ashley still loves it and wears it a lot. My sister had the girl-sized set and it was so cute!
The jacket - both the girl and doll ones are very thick and so SOFT! The jacket is made of lavender-colored material with a pinkish cast, ribbed at the bottom with real pockets. Some of those reflective ribbons run the length of the sleeve and "AG" is embroidered on the left cuff. The jacket really zips up with a plastic and metal zipper, too! Also, you could probably pair this with other outfits. A+
The shirt - this is slightly on the thin side but it pulls it off well. Velcroing up the back as usual, the front as a wreath of flowers surrounding "AG", and chain stitching of different colors around the edges of the shirt. Again, not exactly sporty, but another one of those mix-and-match pieces. A
The pants - the pants are the letdown, thin and too short, and they come down in the back when Ashley's sitting. The velcro up the front and then snap with a round metal snap. The cuffs have flower embroidery and zip up the side. The girl-sized pants were much thicker and lined with fleece, I wish these were too. C.
The shoes - the shoes, to me, look like "doll shoes", although I think they were supposed to represent the sporty slip-on sneakers girls were wearing around that time. These are obviously purple pleather with pink and blue stripes. They have a band of elastic in the back so they'll actually stay on the dolls foot, which is a plus. Still, though, we like the outfit better with the gray sneakers. B
The barrettes - two rectangular metal barrettes complete the set, and I thought they held a fair amount of hair. However, they definitely tarnished badly. Maybe a silver cloth would fix them up, I know that worked with the 1998 cowgirl badge which was also cheap metal. B-
Warning: sleeper outfit alert! This outfit was very low on my list. I am so glad I ran across a good deal on ebay. It is def. on my top 10.
It is so true to life. Cute, but not too cutsie.
My favorite is the shirt, so perfect. Soft and comfy and the cute cute detail...yum! The pants are thin, but no more so than any other rip stop sweat pants. The jacket and shoes are secondary, but still nice. Grade: A+
